Get In Line- Kirra Jamison

Because I am opportunistic, whenever I am waiting for my coffee, I like to quickly flick through what ever reading material is available. At a local cafe, I was doing just that, when I come across an article on Kirra Jamison in InsideOut magazine. I was instantly reminded of why I love her work.  Fresh, vibrant, rhythmic and modern. Oh, and she's completely beautiful too.

Beautiful and uber talented.

You can read an interview with her over at The Design Files and Daily Imprint. Both places are very deserving of your time.

Are you in love too?

Thought so.
